Chipboard Lovebirds



Hi friends! The official "Winter Break" might not be quite over yet, but my little blog break definitely is. I'm SO ready to get back into more regular creating and posting - starting today!

I've pulled out a few of my current very favorite things to create a sweet, vintage{ish} anniversary card - the Life Stories #1 patterned paper collection by My Mind's Eye, chipboard, distressing, sewing, and bling.

I started with the wonderful decorative frame, which is a punch-out paper die-cut from Life Stories, then dressed the Maya Road chipboard lovebirds in some coordinating Life Stories papers, and then just played with pattern and layer combinations. I love the new Decorative 2" Round Wide Borders by JustRite Stamps, so I tucked one of those in behind the birds and the Melissa Frances glittered chipboard heart. The beautiful JustRite borders make such great background accents like this. The bling is by Zva Creative, and the "love of a lifetime" rub-on in the lower left corner is from my Stampin' Up stash.

I finished the inside with a simple top border that includes the Happy Anniversary semicircle sentiment, which is from JustRite's Celebrations Demi Phrases set. The butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch.



Be sure to check out all the Sales & Specials at Stamper's Dream. The MME Life Stories paper collections, the newest JustRite sets, and a whole lot of other dreamy papercrafting goodies are on sale!

Thanks so much for visiting! I've missed blogging these last couple of weeks, and I've missed all of you! Happy New Year and farewell 2009!
